Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked and misaligned teeth are known sources of self-consciousness, embarrassment, and low self-esteem. At Dr. Michael’s Orthodontic Center, our Specialist Orthodontists offer a variety of orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
There's a lot of treatment options to correct teeth that are crowded or crooked including retainers, aligners, and braces (invisible, metal, ceramic, or micro braces). Correcting a bad bite and improperly aligned teeth (malocclusion) is important not only for aesthetic reasons but also for proper oral health and function.
Your age, jaw, and the size of your teeth all contribute to your smile. Bite problems usually become obvious between ages 6 and 12, and orthodontic treatments often start at ages 8 and 14. But this doesn’t mean that adults aren’t good candidates for braces. Healthy teeth can be adjusted at any age. In fact, many orthodontic cases can be corrected as easily for adults as for children.
